Bumpdate 29 Weeks


How Far Along: 29 weeks.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I am now going to the doctor every two weeks, so I guess I will find out this week. Ack. That was fast!

Gender: It’s a girl!

Movement: Baby has the hiccups! It took me a while to figure out what I was feeling. I kept wondering if I could feel her heart beat then I was like – duh – those have to be hiccups! She has had them almost daily.

Sleep: Sleep has been fine.

Maternity Clothes: Sister needs more maternity clothes, but I keep squeezing myself into my normal clothes (See unflattering picture above.)

Symptoms: Basically, the same as the week before.

Aversions: Fried food, alcohol.

Cravings: Sweets and cereal. I try to fill the sweets void with fruit.

Best Moment this week: I passed my three hour gestational diabetes test! I was surprised when I got the call on Tuesday that I had flunked really badly (mainly because I had taken the one hour test 8 days prior and they said they would call in a day or two if I didn’t pass, but that is neither here nor there), so I was a little anxious to take the three hour test. I got the call Friday that passed and was ever so grateful!

When you take the three hour test you have to drink double the amount of liquid. I started to not feel very good and luckily they let me lay down. I talked to a friend and she said she threw up after she drank the liquid and had to go back and do it all over again the next day. Ugh. I don’t think I will ever be able to drink an orange drink ever again.

Edited to add: Huge highlight – my sweet friend Addie offered to take the baby’s pictures for us! She is no longer taking clients and does amazing work, so I am so excited to have her take our newborn photos! Love her!


  1. You're getting so close to the end! Congrats on passing that fun test- yeck!

  2. You look cuter than ever to me!! I'm glad you passed that test, and I think you deserve new maternity clothes - if you want them!! I liked your weekly faves yesterday, and I'm still praying for Tommy's uncle. I guess I didn't win the contest for the organizer?!
    Love, Aunt Angie

  3. Way to go on passing the test!! I know that was stressful. Enjoy your week!

  4. I mean, honestly, Katie. HONESTLY!! How do you look cuter and cuter each week!?! Seriously. And congrats on passing your test. That drink was the worst. Nothing like having someone hand you something to drink and preface it with: "Careful, if you drink this too fast, you will puke." Huh, kinda makes me miss college now that I think about it.


  5. So excited Addie is taking your baby pics. She is the best. love, mom
